For his one-man ode to an idol, actor Julian Sands (A Room With a View, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) combines the poems and political prose of Nobel Prize-winning British poet and playwright Sir Harold Pinter. Pinter earned acclaim for his plays The Caretaker and The Birthday Party, and was famously outspoken about international human rights abuses and U.S. foreign policy. Sands' homage will include his own personal anecdotes culled from working with Pinter shortly before the writer's death in 2008. Acclaimed actor-director John Malkovich -- who's directed a number of Pinter plays and acted alongside Sands -- helmed this internationally renowned production. Learn More
While primarily a classical musician, Hilary Hahn participates in a number of alternative projects and collaborations. She was the violin soloist on James Newton Howard’s Oscar-nominated soundtrack to M. Night Shyamalan’s film The Village. She wrote and performed violin tracks for singer/songwriter Tom Brosseau’s record Grand Forks; and has worked frequently with folk singer/songwriter Josh Ritter. She is also active on the contemporary classical music scene. In 1999, she premiered and recorded the violin concerto written for her by the American bassist and composer Edgar Meyer, and in 2009 she did the same with Jennifer Higdon’s Pulitzer Prize-winning violin concerto, also dedicated to her.
Hahn graduated from The Curtis Institute at age 19 with a bachelor of music degree. Her major orchestral debut came with the Baltimore Symphony in 1991, followed by her international debut at age 14 in Hungary, playing Bernstein with Ivan Fischer and the Budapest Festival Orchestra.
